I’ve really been humbled, not in a bad way.. in a VERY good positive enlightened way. This week, I’ve been in a panic in a way, feeling the stress of getting this album manufactured and into pledger hands. Feeling the stress of taking care of financial
things, and I was feeling a little out of it... UNTIL I received a very uplifting email from Pledger Tom Foth. Tom has been watching my journey from when I tried and failed with the Kickstarter campaign a few years ago. Back then, he believed in me and my music, and even now he is with us at Pledge.
Why did I fail with Kickstarter? I believe it had to do with my attitude, my whole spiritual self was out of alignment. I placed myself on a path that was destructive to myself, and I wasn’t really ready to take on a Kickstarter campaign at that time ( hindsight mind you). I had a pity party, and snapped out of it.
In 2012, my attitude changed, I became centered within my centered spirit. Summer of 2013, I felt a vulnerability that has left me open to the changes that are happening to me this past year. It takes a HUGE amount of trust to let go, and to do something so different and scary, that this journey has taught me about myself and others. For example, this letter I received from Tom this past week, I wanted to share with you what because what Tom wrote to me explains exactly what I am talking about:
“I just want you to know that I've been quietly reading every word and (not successfully) trying to listen to the tracks (I want them to be a surprise!). As I wrote before when you first attempt failed, I believe in you and your music.
You're among the best!”
What Tom said, really hit me in my heart. Tears, came down my cheeks and I can’t tell you what that meant to me. THIS ^^ my friends is what music is all about. You guys all believe in me and my music.. and I am SO humbled and thankful for your belief in me.
Now that we are coming down to the wire, I’d really like to see us hit 200% of our goal. Why? So that the costs to promote the album and help cover all the marketing costs. I KNOW we can do it. So many of you have rescued me... its time for me to rescue you with this album. Banding together, is what this has been about.
